Is there a fuel inertia cut off switch and where is it located?


Only Ford products use an inertia switch, and it only turns off in a wreck.
Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ?

2010 nissan versa got in a collision. Wont crank over. Would the fuel inertia switch cause this?


Fuel inertia switch stops the fuel pump running in the case of a collision causing a broken fuel pipe which otherwise could spray a litre of petrol every few seconds and rather spoil someone's day.

Certainly a tripped inertia switch would prevent the engine from starting but I doubt it would stop the engine cranking, though I don't have up to date information on the model and there could be different safety regulations where you are.
The inertia switches are accessible and resettable so why not just reset it and try again. Your vehicle handbook will have the details.

An immobiliser stops the the engine cranking on some vehicles as well as stopping the spark and injection and often the fuel pump.
Bridging the battery positive wire to the solenoid to make the starter crank the engine won't be switching the rest of the stuff back on.

Wont start


The only reset switch is the a fuel pump cutoff (inertia) switch located in the trunk near the driver's side rear wheel well. You'll see it if you peel the carpet back a bit - it's the red button in the black housing. However, that won't keep it from cranking.

Do you have an aftermarket remote car starter or alarm system? If so, start looking at that first - you may have an immoblizer switch in the hood. It's designed to keep you from starting your car when the hood is up. If it fails, it could keep your car from cranking. You may also have a "hidden" immobilizer switch somewhere in your car, typically under the dash.

Check your fuses/relays, including the ones under the hood. Your owners manual will tell you which are which.

1998 town car cranks but want start


Often this is the Inertia switch causing this. Look in the trunk next to the Air-ride switch. There is a reset button on the Inertia switch. Just press the rest and try to start the car.

Will not start


The most frequent cause is the Inertia switch. Usually in a car with Air-ride the switch is located in the trunk next to the Air-ride switch. It has a reset button.
Other styles of Inertia switches are behind the front floor kick panels. Do an Internet search for "2001 Lincoln LS Inertia switch location".
If you mean the Engine did not crank over- A common problem is a switch on the top of the brake pedal lever. Often the brake lights will not work with this defect. Press the pedal and see.
The brake pedal switch often gets hit by a drivers foot and breaks or gets repositioned.
Please rate my info.

I can't get my 1999 lincoln town car to start


I will try to give you 2 sets of senarios depending on whether it cranks over or not.

There is a safety switch on the Brake pedal which sends a signal to the Brake lights and a starter circuit. If the Brake lights do not light up with a foot on them, then a starter signal will not go through either.

Look under the Driver's dash for the Brake switch on the Brake pedal lever. It could be broken of pushed out if place.

Cranks but no start. The Inertia switch is common problem. It can be located in the trunk or behind the kick panels of the front floor. It has a reset button to push.

Loss of fuel pressure. After checking the Inertia switch if you still have no fuel pressure the pump may be bad.

Now there are other reasons like a dead battery, bad starter, etc.

We need more details to supply additional answers.

Locate the fuel shut off inertia switch, you can call the service dept. at your local chevy dealership to help find its location, there is a button on the switch push down and hold down for a few seconds.

Car will crank then cut off??????


Look in the trunk in the left quarter panel area near the back of the tail lamp and you will see a small black module with a red or white button on top of it.This is the fuel pump inertia switch designed to trip during impact to shut off the fuel pump. Just push down on the button until u feel it click. Then cycle the ignition switch from off to on a couple of times to prime the pump and you should be set to go.
